A premium of 22% of the successful bid price will be added thereto and is payable by the purchaser as part of the total purchase price on lots in sale. 3. DuMouchelles reserves the right to withdraw any property before sale. 4. Unless otherwise announced by the auctioneer, all bids are per lot as numbered in the catalog. 5. Notwithstanding the preceding condition, if within twenty-one days of the sale of any lot, the purchaser gives notice in writing to DuMouchelles that the lot so sold is a counterfeit and, if within fourteen days of such notice the purchaser returns the lot to DuMouchelles in the same condition as when sold, and proves beyond a reasonable doubt that the returned lot is in fact a counterfeit and that this was not indicated by a fair reading of the catalog, the sale will be rescinded and the purchase price refunded. Consignor agrees to refund DuMouchelles any payments made to Consignor for any counterfeit property returned DuMouchelles. 6. Unless the sale is advertised and announced as a sale without reserves, each lot is offered subject to reserve and the DuMouchelles may implement such reserves by bidding through its representatives on behalf of the Consignor. In certain instances, the Consignor may pay DuMouchelles less than the standard commission rate where the Consignor is the successful bidder. Where the Consignor is indebted to DuMouchelles, and in certain other instances, DuMouchelles may have an interest in the offered lots and the proceeds there from other than the commissions for their sale. 7. DuMouchelles reserves the right to reject a bid from any bidder. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the purchaser. In the event of any dispute between bidders, the auctioneer shall have sole and final discretion either to determine the purchaser or to re-offer and resell the article in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, the sale record of DuMouchelles shall be conclusive in all respects. 8. If the auctioneer determines that any opening bid is not commensurate with the value of the article offered, he may reject the same and withdraw the article from the sale; and, if having acknowledged an opening bid, he decides that any advance thereafter is not of sufficient amount, he may reject the advance. 9.

Unless exempted by law from the payment thereof, the purchaser will be required to pay Michigan state retail sales taxes at a rate of 6%, or any taxes that are applicable at this date. Unless exemption from such taxes is established to the satisfaction of DuMouchelles, any purchaser claiming an exemption will be required to pay the tax to DuMouchelles and seek a refund. 11. Purchasers not intending to take possession or use the property purchased by them at the sale within the State of Michigan must make arrangements with a shipping company for shipment outside the State of Michigan at the purchaser's risk and expense prior to the bidding. Otherwise, Michigan state taxes of 6% will be added to the bill. REMOVAL OF PROPERTY 1. Unless different arrangements have been agreed upon, all purchases must be removed by the purchaser by 5 p.m. on the third business day following the sale. Removal during the sale on Saturday and Sunday may not be conducted before 2:00 p.m. of that day. Purchases not so removed will be subject to a handling charge to cover our costs. See paragraph "9" of the "Conditions of Sale." 2. Purchasers are advised that packing and handling of purchased lots by our employees are undertaken solely as a courtesy for the convenience of clients; and in the case of fragile articles, will be undertaken at our sole discretion.
